The follow up to the popular Alvin and the Chipmunks movie is now coming to theaters in the form of Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel. Jason Lee again plays their friend and caretaker Dave Seville, but as luck would have it, poor Dave will have to trust his lazy cousin, 21 year old Toby, played by Zachary Levi, to look after the Chipmunks in this new adventure.
While the Chipmunks are performing at a benefit concert in Paris, the antics of Alvin, played by Justin Long, causes Dave to sustain injuries which put poor old Dave in the hospital for a few days. Prior to this unfortunate turn of events, Dave had made arrangements for Alvin, Theodore, played by Jesse McCartney, and Simon, played by Matthew Gray Gubler, to attend school.
Now Dave has to enlist the help of his younger, less responsible cousin Toby and his Aunt Jackie, played by Kathryn Joosten, to take charge of the Chipmunks until Dave can get released from the hospital. This duo doesn’t last long, however, as Aunt Jackie has an unfortunate accident of her own at the airport, leaving Toby as the Chipmunks sole caretaker.
While dealing with a school full of humans and bullies, the Chipmunks take it upon themselves to try and save the school’s music program by winning a $25,000 Battle of the Bands contest. During this time, Ian Hawke, played by David Cross, is searching for new singing and dancing animal acts after being scorned by The Chipmunks. He comes across a group of female chipmunks called the Chipettes, and sees them as a means to get revenge on the Chipmunks for leaving him. Not realizing Ian has actually lost his job, the Chipettes take him up on his offer to represent them and also enter into the Battle of the Bands contest.
Once meeting each other, the Chipmunks fall in love with Brittany, played by Christina Applegate, Eleanor, played by Amy Poehler, and Jeanette, played by Anna Farris, until they find out the Chipettes are working for Ian. This leads to the two groups competing for the $25000 prize in the Battle of the Bands and the girls inadvertently finding out that Ian has tricked them.
Ian then kidnaps the girls, and after winning the Battle of the Bands, Alvin uses his motorcycle to rescue the girls from the clutches of Ian. After once again foiling the plans of Ian, the Chipmunks return to Dave with their new found loves, and Dave adopts the girls as his own, leading to one big happy chipmunk family.
Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel was just released today in theaters on December 25, 2009. Watch the trailer below.
